The Knickerbocker is a haven of refined elegance, created by John Jacob Astor in 1906 and now reimagined into a sophisticated urban sanctuary mere blocks from Fifth Avenue, MoMA, Rockefeller Center and Central Park. Here is where famed Italian tenor Enrico Caruso and renowned American playwright George M. Cohan made their homes, and where names like Rockefeller and Fitzgerald gathered in what was once known as the 42nd Street Country Club.

The Hotel welcomes guests of all abilities. Our property descriptions aim to allow any visitor to make an informed decision on whether the hotel is an appropriate choice for their needs.
